Today’s Forecast: Monday brings the HEAT. Temperatures are likely to break records today. The record for Colorado Springs is 94° and the forecast today is 94°. Today the record in Pueblo is 100° and the forecast is 101°. The sky will be clear with just a few clouds. Find a way to beat the heat today and stay hydrated.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 94; Low - 62. Today will be very hot in the Springs. By noon and until at least 6 pm temperatures will be in the 90s. Conditions will be more comfortable this evening for a run, walking the dog, or sitting on the patio.

PUEBLO: High - 101; Low - 63. Today will be a scorcher in Pueblo and along the Arkansas river. Avoid strenuous outdoor activities to avoid heat illness! The sky will be sunny and winds will be light.

CANON CITY: High - 99; Low - 66. Toasty in Canon City today, staying just under the triple digits. A few clouds and light winds are expected this afternoon, with little to relieve us from the heat.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 84; Low - 54. Well above average in Woodland Park today to the mid 80s! Summer time is still in full swing in the mountain valleys. Today will be dry with a few clouds.

TRI-LAKES: High - 80s/90s; Low - 50s. Today we will hover between the upper 80s and low 90s for the Tri-Lakes. The sky will be sunny with a few clouds. Drink plenty of water on this hot, dry Monday.

PLAINS: High - 90s/100s; Low - 60s. Scorcher today, with 100s for the Arkansas river basin, and upper 90s elsewhere in the Plains. The sky will be clear this afternon, but an isolated shower is possible thanks to some shallow moisture that moved in from Kansas overnight. That activity will be hard to come by.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 90s; Low - 60s. Mid and upper 90s are expected for Walsenburg and Trinidad, respectively. The sky will be sunny with a few clouds. Stay hydrated!

Extended Outlook: The heat continues on Tuesday, again with possible records for Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Relief comes on Wednesday with a cold front that takes temperatures back to normal levels. This front also brings in the potential for evening showers, especially for Wednesday and scattered activity Thursday.
